I'm an idiot

I noticed a bill today due 2/20. Immediately signed into my bank to pay it, but it won't hit until 2/22. Sigh. I'm going to have to ask for a waiver if I'm hit with a late fee.

I totally dropped the ball. I'm paying all CC bills tomorrow.

I hate when stuff like this happens

1. We have all done this

at one time or another, I'd be willing to bet. I know I have. Don't beat yourself up too hard over it. I am 78 and have been paying bills for years and still do it on occasion! Here's a (virtual) hug to make you feel better.

8. Don't give your inner critic power by tearing yourself down

You recognized the mistake and are ready to rectify it if there are issues. That makes you responsible and smart!! Definitely not an idiot!

10. I once wrote a check for the credit card, put it in an envelope,

Put a stamp on the envelope and put the envelope in my jacket to mail and then found it in my jacket a month later. It happens.

11. Can the payment run in the other direction?

(Caveat - assuming you trust the company)

Paying from you bank can take a little time before the payee gets it (and they donít know about it until then) - but many payees have their own payment sites that will debit your bank account. They often count the payment as being made on the same (or next) day.
